I particularly like the visual impact of the site. It is both engaging
and minimalist at the same time. The upper part of each page is
consistent. I have mixed feelings about large images (the lights)
pushing content lower on the page. The images of the lights are
attractive, but become tiring.
The About page includes (or will include) some examples of your work; I
suggest they move to the Portfolio, and leave About straight-forward.
The Portfolio section loses the consistency of the upper part of the
page. I had to check to see where I was, and pause for a minute and
wonder what changed. I think I know what you want to accomplish with the
smaller and larger images of sites you've designed, but I find it odd to
view only part of a page. I suggest presenting the entire image.
The Resources part of the site, which I think is wonderful, also seems
(to me) to visually fall apart. There is a mix of pages that are
completely different (I realize this is a WIP) and links that just take
me away from your site (sometimes inevitable). Most suggestions I would
offer are arguably their own set of problems (open in separate window or
tab, open in a frame, etc.).
Contact page likewise changes layout and is distracting.
Kudos for making address and phone accessible from every page. Not sure
you need to repeat the bouquet image from above.
The expanding/contracting feature (on the Journal page, fro example) is
counter intuitive for me. Personally I am comfortable with longer pages;
they do not detract from attractiveness.
On the technical side, the Home and About links both point to /index.php.
I did not mean to dwell on the negative, David. There is a comfort to
the design and the colors. The more time I spent on the site, the more I
was attracted to its positive features.
